Brief AnalysisThe claims are untrue. Norman Reedus is alive and well. In fact, the rumour is just one in a series of false death claims that have targeted the actor in recent years.
Circulating Rumour Claims Norman Reedus Has Died
Some of the 'R.I.P.' messages claim that the actor was found dead in his home.
Claims are Untrue - Norman Reedus is Alive and Well
One current post about Norman's supposed death is actually just a poor-taste prank. A link in the post opens a prank website that informs visitors that they have been 'owned' and invites them to create their own prank message and share it on social media.
Celebrity death hoaxes are very common. Some versions contain links to malware websites or survey scams.
It is thus wise to verify any celebrity death claims that come your way before you share them and before you follow any links that they contain.
